Loved-up Katie Holmes makes first red carpet appearance with boyfriend Bobby Wooten III
Katie Holmes has made her first red carpet appearance alongside new boyfriend Bobby Wooten III.The Dawsons Creek actress, 43, has tended to keep her love life firmly out of the spotlight in recent years, but things appear to be changing as she enjoys life with her new flame.Katie, who shares daughter Suri, 15, with ex-husband Tom Cruise, was recently spotted sharing a kiss with musician Bobby on a loved-up stroll around New Yor City.Now the pair have made their red carpet debut at the Moth Ball Gala, looking absolutely, adorably, smitten.Arriving at the prestigious ceremony – the 25th anniversary of the Gala – Bobby and Katie looked relaxed and happy in each other’s company, cuddling up easily on the red carpet.Katie, dressed in an elegant and flowing orange dress with a high collar and black heels, tilted her head toward Bobby’s and hung her arm over his shoulders as they posed for photographs.Bobby, looking suave in a dark teal suit and black shirt, kept his arm around his actress girlfriend as he beamed at the cameras.The pair enjoyed a drinks reception on the terrace of the lavish event, and in one photo appear to be laughing together as they pose for the cameras.A smitten Katie again has her arm over Bobby’s shoulder, Bobby’s hand placed protectively on her back, as the couple hold a drink in their free hands.Another snap sees the pair with David Byrne, in whose honour the Silver Ball was dedicated.While David looks ahead and smiles for the camera, Bobby seems to be in fits of laughter, and Katie, rather than looking into the lens, is turned into him with a grin on her face.

‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ breaks A24 box office record
Everything Everywhere All At Once has broken a US box office record for indie studio A24.The ambitious, multi-dimensional martial arts film, direct by The Daniels (Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), overtook Uncut Gems as the studio’s highest-grossing movie ever, making $52,263,484 (£41,829,079) at the US domestic box office after the weekend.The Michelle Yeoh-starring film could be on course to overtake Ari Aster’s horror movie Hereditary as A24’s highest-grossing movie worldwide ($80million) – especially as it still hasn’t opened in all international markets yet, even after its delayed release in UK and Ireland cinemas on May 13.Yeoh plays Evelyn Wang in the film, a mother thrown into a sci-fi action-adventure – alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Stephanie Hsu and Ke Huy Quan – after she learns she’s able to access the memory and skills of alternate versions of herself throughout the multiverse.Watch the trailer for Everything Everywhere All At Once below.Earlier this month (May 13), Yeoh said she texted Jackie Chan teasing him about turning down the lead role.The martial arts legend was originally envisioned by Scheinert and Kwan as playing Everything Everywhere All At Once‘s main character. However, when he said he was unavailable, they rewrote the part for Yeoh.“Jackie actually texted me,” she told the Guardian about his response to the film.

David Byrne: “Spotify is making artists uncomfortable”
David Byrne says he believes that Spotify is “making artists uncomfortable” around the scandal relating to COVID misinformation shared on Joe Rogan’s podcast.Earlier this year, Rogan and Spotify were heavily criticised for sharing misinformation about the coronavirus vaccine on the exclusive podcast The Joe Rogan Experience, which led to artists including Neil Young and Joni Mitchell removing their music from the service.Byrne, who in 2013 publicly criticised the “pittance” artists are paid in terms of royalties from streaming services like Spotify, and claimed he had pulled as much of his catalogue as possible from the service, was asked his thoughts on the ongoing scandal in a new interview with the Guardian.“There’s been all these things about platforms having … let’s say questionable or controversial content [and] putting out misinformation or outright lies or … not exactly hate speech, but things that are making a lot of artists uncomfortable,” he said.“And it’s pretty tough to do anything to help ameliorate that unless you’re a Drake or Taylor Swift, or those kinds of artists. It’s pretty hard for the rest of us to have influence.”Byrne added: “A handful of mega, mega artists are doing really well, and many of the others – especially emerging artists – are having a tough time with it.
